On Friday, July 21, 2023, the Presiding Disciplinary Judge of the Supreme Court of Colorado approved the parties’ stipulation to disbar attorney Jason Haubenreiser for attempting to influence a public servant.
The case is entitled “In the matter of Jason Haubenreiser” with case no. 23PDJ003.
The charges cited Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct 8.4 (b) which states:
It is professional misconduct for a lawyer to commit a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a lawyer in other respects.
The approval of the stipulation by the Presiding Disciplinary Judge has resulted in the disbarment of attorney Jason Haubenreiser. This disbarment took effect on July 21, 2023, following Haubenreiser’s guilty plea in Denver District Court on December 9, 2022. His guilty plea acknowledged attempting to influence a public servant, constituting a serious class-four felony.
The origins of the case against Haubenreiser trace back to his involvement in a civil matter. In a critical lapse during the litigation process, he submitted a falsified document to the court, significantly compromising the case’s integrity and legitimacy.
The repercussions for Haubenreiser were dual-pronged. Initially, he entered a guilty plea, entailing a two-year supervised deferred judgment and sentence as part of the stipulation. Additionally, the Presiding Disciplinary Judge determined that Haubenreiser’s actions unequivocally violated the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct, which explicitly categorizes a lawyer’s criminal conduct reflecting poorly on their honesty as professional misconduct. The submission of a forged document critically marred Haubenreiser’s standing as an attorney and eroded the societal trust in legal practitioners.
The Disposition states:
“The Presiding Disciplinary Judge approved the parties’ stipulation and disbarred Jason Haubenreiser (attorney registration number 54904), effective July 21, 2023.”
Before the disbarment, Mr. Haubenreiser practiced in Denver, Colorado. He is licensed in Colorado. His info can be found on avvo.com.
